I went once with tears in my heart

Unable to cope not willing to share

An empty vessel of who I was

And all through this I just didn’t care

In turning my back and running as I did

What I had become I left behind

Not who I was or what people could see

But the reflection from which I could not hide

Now I return not trying to flee

Found in those days a second home

A soul once cleansed to begin anew

Returns settled no longer alone
